Biography

Nashville native Howard Caine didn't get his start in his home state of Tennessee. Rather, at 13, he and his family moved to New York City. There he began studying acting, before shipping off with the U.S. Navy in World War II. Upon his return, Caine picked up right where he had left off, attending Columbia University's School of Drama. After graduation, he hit the Broadway stage, becoming somewhat of a popular commodity in those years, and finding himself in such hit shows as "Inherit the Wind" and <Damn Yankees." Nevertheless, it wouldn't be long before Caine looked to television. As a master of over 30 dialects, he put his expertise to good use when he received his most famous role as the Gestapo's Major Wolfgang Hochstetter on the pioneering WWII-based comedy "Hogan's Heroes," where he remained for five years. His work as a character actor showed no signs of drying up, as he jumped from bumbling Nazi to Charles Manson's attorney in the film "Helter Skelter." In addition to being an actor of stage and screen, Caine moonlighted as an award-winning banjo player and folk singer. Over the course of his career, Caine performed in over 750 TV programs, as well a number of folk music festivals, before his untimely passing in 1993.
